Tonight’s program commemorates D Day, the invasion of Europe on the beaches of Normandy, France by the Allies which would lead to the eventual defeat of the Nazis and the Axis during WWII. We give thanks to the brave men who fought there and saved the Allies from Nazi domination.
Tonight’s guest is Nathalie Joly who will speak about the International Institute’s upcoming gala, which will have a French theme. Major entertainers (Phil Brunelle, Vocal Essence, Maria Jette) will delight the guests as they dine on escargots, a wide variety of meats, salads, French pastries and desserts. The evening will include an auction of fantastic gifts: trips to Florida, stays in France, wine selections and others. All this to raise funds for the International Institute.
Tonight, there is an all-music program. First, some music about summer: the sun, biking, flowers and gardens. Then, we’ll hear a mixture of old and new from artists from France and various French-speaking countries.
